Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Their robots have increased the rate of efficiency by two to five times in our organization. There is still a human element to code out the package running the robots. You can't just click something and have it run. However, once that has been done, you can parallelize it 10 or 100 times in a fairly straightforward manner.""It's a pretty robust product.""The Robotic Desktop Automation Express component allows us to do rapid development outside the normal, time-consuming processes.""The document processing engine is good. We're extracting around 70 data points from a given document, and we have an automated extraction rate of 80 percent for those fields.""We need to analyze documents in order to understand them. We don't need to dedicate much time to this because WorkFusion's machine learning capabilities are very good. We can easily extract information and classify these documents. The document processing engine is very important to our organization because it is the center for many use cases, as we need to control the information contained in documents.""The cognitive features of this solution are good.""The solution is stable, we have not had any glitches or problems.""WorkFusion helps by speeding up processes. The process takes time. It has business costs associated because there are people waiting to take the next steps in the process. The end result of waiting, whether it is an internal or external team, is that they are delayed. Therefore, it helps us in speeding up business processes and improving employee morale, as people don't have to do repetitive work anymore."

"The initial setup is very quick."

More Another Monday Pros →

"IBM Robotic Process Automation has greatly improved the organization by improving the speed of performance, as the speed of the robot is estimated to be 20 times faster than the human being.""The solution is scalability.""IBM Robotic Process Automation is very easy to use.""I like the integration with Watson and the possibility to have an intelligent reading of all the customers' documents.""If you have a business process, and once you have automated that process, you have a readily available workflow in place.""The quality is great! It's very strong and has a very strong platform."

Cons
"We have executed our robots thousands of times in our enterprise environment. However, in an enterprise environment, WorkFusion has performance problems. It is slow in production.""There could be better version control through their web platform. That is something that could be improved on. Integration from the IDE, e.g., from WorkFusion Studio directly into Control Tower, would be nice to have too.""We had some issues in the past, but it is fairly stable now. From what I hear, it is more stable in the later versions. With version 10.1.4, there were some issues relating to load distribution. However, it is good now.""The product needs to be "simple and easy" to use. A good example of this is the use of Python code to perform automations. It is free and the skills transfer is able to happen quickly and the operation and initiation of the completed automation is easy to execute.""We have had some problems in the past with the Inspector tool that looks at the elements on the screen. Replacing it or improving it is needed.""We are having some database issues, but we are addressing them.""The user experience could be better both from an RPA perspective and from a business perspective.""It is difficult for non-technical users to use WorkFusion. If we really want to build automation, we definitely need Java developers. Their RPA is not for non-technical people. If I look at competing products, like Automation Anywhere, UiPath, Blue Prism, or even Power Automate, a non-technical person can build basic automations and deploy them. Since non-technical people can easily build basic automations, they can be deployed in no time. With WorkFusion, there isn't a similar feature that works well. One needs to write code from scratch to build automation. That is definitely a deterrent if we really want to do quick, dirty automation. I would not rate WorkFusion very high on their no-code, low-code paradigm. In this area, I would definitely expect them to improve."

More WorkFusion Cons →

"The solution should come with language customization, which would simplify its use for our customers."

More Another Monday Cons →

"IBM Robotic Process Automation should be more stable.""IBM should provide specific solutions for specific problems, like templates for invoicing processes, or general templates for creating efficient processes.""This RPA should be under the umbrella of BPM. This is what the future should be.""Stability could be better.""We would like a decreased need for customer support.""The time it takes for approvals, and risk analysis could be faster."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is not the most expensive solution, but it is also not the cheapest."
  • "I can't speak to pricing. It's a contract signed by upper management."
  • "We are on an annual contract to use the solution."
  • "My client is using RPA Express, which is available for them to use free of charge."
  • "One upgrade took a year to do, from the first server being built to the last bot being migrated. This was because we had to migrate all our existing bots. This is the same process and time frame that we are expecting towards the upcoming upgrade. I will end up spending half a million dollars to do an upgrade."
  • "The solution was not the cheapest, but it was also not the most expensive. Workfusion was very open to negotiating pricing and to working within the objectives of our firm."
  • "As a first-time customer who wants to engage with WorkFusion, not working for my company, then I would want to do a PoC. The cost is prohibitive because they will ask me to get infrastructure with six or seven servers. Then, you must buy a WorkFusion license to do a PoC, which is expensive. I would then have to set up a team to build the PoC and see the benefits. That is very prohibitive."
  • "We have a good deal from WorkFusion. We have an unlimited global licensing deal with WorkFusion. For us, it is a no-worry solution. We can go ahead and use it as much as possible anywhere we need it. If WorkFusion has a different kind of a deal for licensing with others, then their business decisions need to be evaluated based on that."

  • "There is no licensing fee for our customers."
  • More Another Monday Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "IBM licensing is annual and based on Virtual Processor Cores (VPC). This provides flexibility as part of the containerization environment."
  • "The license is paid annually."

    WorkFusion has been recognized as a Leader in both RPA and Intelligent Document Processing categories and has received the highest ranking for the "Augment Knowledge Workers" and "Document Processing" use cases by Gartner Critical Capabilities assessment.

    Building a fully-automated robotic process environment where robot
    workers performed an equivalent volume of work of over 1,500 full-time
    virtual employees required the careful development and optimization of
    an RPA-architecture.
    We created an architecture that embodies the best practices of both
    RPA-methodology and RPA-tools. These two components defined automation
    best practices like the enforcing of a rigorous process mapping and a
    process automation design approach that captures every action for all
    workflow possibilities and exceptions. Further, this enables a bot that
    could seamlessly recover from exception-based failures. Ultimately,
    that delivers industrial-grade performance at scale!

    IBM Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that encompasses the use of smart robots in any process requiring efficiency, consistency and speed, with no risk of mistakes. In a nutshell, RPA simulates a human user working.

    Today, it is possible to automate processes through the use of digital robots, or bots, which execute pre-programed, repetitive tasks in a safe and mistake free manner. There are literally thousands of opportunities for Robotic Process Automation to make an impact on your organization today, including: automatic invoice emission, system integration, information reconciliation, report generation, intelligent email management to lead generation, and many others.
